Abstract Background Biofuels from hydrothermal liquefaction (HTL) of abundantly available forest residues in British Columbia (BC) can potentially make great contributions to reduce the greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from the transportation sector. A life-cycle assessment was conducted to quantify the GHG emissions of a hypothetic 100 million liters per year HTL biofuel system in the Coast Region of BC. Three scenarios were defined and investigated, namely, supply of bulky forest residues for...

The Youth in Transition (YIT) project is a longitudinal study of four nationally representative cohorts of young people. This is the cohort of respondents born in 1975. Variables encompass five primary areas: i. overall test results; ii. secondary school - level attained, educational and employment plans for the future, views on school, type of school attended and reasons for leaving school before completing Year 12; iii. post-secondary education/training including study area, institution att...

Abstract Background High mammographic density is associated with both risk of cancers being missed at mammography, and increased risk of developing breast cancer. Stratification of breast cancer prevention and screening requires mammographic density measures predictive of cancer. This study compares five mammographic density measures to determine the association with subsequent diagnosis of breast cancer and the presence of breast cancer at screening. Methods Women participating in the “Predi...

Abstract Background While the N-terminal pro-brain-type natriuretic peptide (NT-proBNP) at rest is known to be associated with prognosis in pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH), it is unclear if the NT-proBNP response to exercise (ΔNT-proBNP) can contribute to a better assessment of disease severity. Methods We investigated the association of NT-proBNP values at rest and during peak exercise with hemodynamics and cardiopulmonary exercise testing parameters in 63 therapy-naive PAH patients. R...

A D-finite power series satisfies a system of linear partial differential equations with polynomial coefficients of special type. This class of power series has been systematically investigated by Stanley in his book Enumerative Combinatorics (Volume II). We prove that a multivariate D-finite power series with coefficients from a finite set is rational. This generalizes a rationality theorem of van der Poorten and Shparlinski in 1996. As an application, we will show how this result can be...

One of the most important factors driving the development of memory during childhood is mnemonic control, or the capacity to initiate and maintain the processes that guide encoding and retrieval operations. The ability to selectively attend to and encode relevant stimuli is a particularly useful form of mnemonic control, and is one that undergoes marked improvement over childhood. We hypothesized that structural integrity of white matter tracts, in particular those connecting medial temporal ...

Abstract Background Adenosine-to-Inosine (A-to-I) RNA editing is catalyzed by the adenosine deaminase acting on RNA (ADAR) family of enzymes, which induces alterations in mRNA sequence. It has been shown that A-to-I RNA editing events are of significance in the cellâ s innate immunity and cellular response to viral infections. However, whether RNA editing plays a role in cellular response to microorganism/fungi infection has not been determined. Candida albicans, one of the most prevalent hu...
